A million points of light
Ascending to the sky
Monuments in darkness
Standing watch
Until the sun will rise
Screaming to an emptiness
0ow we defined ourselves
With our hands over our eyes
Claiming all of creation

What inspires in us this madness
That out existence should be defined
By a light that can't be seen by anyone?
What inspires in us this madness
That out existence should be defined
By a light that we can't see?
By a light that can't be seen?

A million points of light
Ascending to the sky
Monuments is darkness
Standing watch
Until the sun will rise
I cant, I can't see this all as progress
How did we come this far?
When we see ourselves as deities
Claiming Nature for ourselves
By our actions we betray
The instincts in our race
By our blindness and stupidity
We kill everything
We kill everything

Can someone see our self destruction?
Are we reminding ourselves
That our existance is
So delicate
That without this light we are no more
That without this light we've made we are no more

A million points of light
Ascending to the sky
Monuments in darkness
Standing watch
Until the sun will rise
We torch this earth until it bleeds
Rain ashes from the sky
Just to make a light that no one can see
We cut this earth until it bleeds
Rain ashes from the sky
Just to make a light that no one can see
Just to make a light
Just to make a light
We kill everything
By our blindness and stupidity
We kill everything

And in a 1000 years what will be our legacy
A million lights that no one can see
A million points of light
